me bring you in. speaker boehner said quote, i'm the most reasonable guy in washington, d.c. he was also asked about congressman paul ryan's pecking order with the house republicans. let me play what he said regarding where paul ryan the vp candidate, now stands with him. >> congressman paul ryan is he the leader of the republican party now? >> oh i wouldn't think so. paul ryan's a policy wonk. >> he's a policy wonk. basically right now i'm still the man. so how does speaker boehner, if he's the man and most reasonable guy in washington how does he get some of the conservatives, including even paul ryan a guy who is newly minted in some way with a little bit of juice, to come along? >> i think if you look at how this will actually unfold you find your answer tamron. the fact of the matter is a very small number of people will negotiate a deal or not. that includes speaker boehner. it includes majority leader reid and the white house. once they come up with a deal whatever it looks like it's going to be subject to an up or down vote. this isn't something you
to get things done here in washington. >> democrats today said they're confident a deal can be reached by christmas. but admit negotiations would need to pick up steam. as for senator reid, he says it's now up to the gop to make the next move. >> we're still waiting for a serious offer from the republicans. the president has made his proposal. we need a proposal from them. >> okay. let's dig in and bring in nbc's capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. fill us in on how the meetings are going so far. last but not least, nancy pelosi coming up. >> exactly. she'll meet within the hour. each of these prooit meetings today an important step to get a sense of where the white house is with the congressional leaders. we don't always get one on one meetings. that may be helpful in moving things along. the political word of the day seems to be specifics. both republicans and democrats are battering the other side saying there aren't enough specific proposals. we're sort of in that moment where the real work happens behind the scenes and the front stage part, the political theater you referr
there's no socialization left in washington. members of congress are there tuesday through thursday. they get out of dodge. their kids aren't in school there. not enough sharing of cocktails among one another. and frankly, i think they need to spend more time together and stop litigating this thing openly. >> bipartisan bourbon perhaps. >> yes. >> you had a piece in politico this week and here is the headline. democrats bet republicans cave on taxes. how confident are democrats that they're going to win this thing, they'll make this happen. >> they feel like this looks like the 2011 payroll tax. remember at the time house republicans were not going to pass that extension to that payroll tax holiday, but they felt boxed in at the end of the day and they eventually had to do what the president wanted. democrats believe that they have the issue here, they have a bill that passed out of the senate. they think the house will adopt it. the republicans say there is just no way that's going to happen, that in order to get any sort of deal on revenue, democrats have to -- >>> have a fantasti
-controlled house of representatives. perhaps setting the stage for further gridlock in washington, the results of the house where republicans maintained solid majority in the next hour we're expecting to hear of house speaker john boehner. right now, joining me, national syndicated talk show host michael smirconish and joe frolic for "the cleveland plain dealer." thank you all for joining. michael, when's the reaction you're hearing from people you talk to all day on the radio? >> nerds rule. >> we know that from high school. >> well, when all is said and done, though, the data trumped the emotion. there was a huge debate that broke out in the last couple of days. how could nate silver and the poll-driven individuals believe there's a 90% chance that the president would rwin re-electio? the race was called by nbc in the 11:00 hour. that's a stunning development. >> i believe one of our colleagues sweeted it took the president 12 minutes longer to win this time around. >> right. >> in pennsylvania, it was 52-47 for the president. michael, and what's to the very end that romney's team at least s
, the gaza strip. it's basically twice the size of washington, d.c. with over 1.5 million people crammed in to the borders and hamas in civilian neighborhoods to draw israeli strikes in and then head leans are israel kills innocent civilians in palestine. the factions of fatah and hamas are at lauger heads. who's egypt and israel supposed to be an honest broker with trying to get the safety of these innocent people, the palestinians trying to go around about their daily lives, living in terrible conditions within gaza. >> you hit upon one of the most important issues that have played out in 48 hours where abbas, the palestinian authority, and the west bank have been completely cut out of this process. it's very clear that hamas is the palestinian power. i think that for the palestinian people, it's been a long, hard road that fatah and hamas have not had good relations. you have a split palestinian people but i think mahmoud abbas is really on his back foot now because the palestinian authority and the west bank representatives have really been cut out of the process almost entirely an t
of the meeting but instead delivered a hit directed at the whole of washington. >> the whole issue of benghazi has been to me a tawdry affair. everything about it. i have found no heroes here in washington. >> and for the second day in a row press secretary carny defended the president's ambassador to the u.n. >> my view on this is the same as it was yesterday which is that the focus on and in some cases the obsessive focus on ambassador rice's appearance on a series of sunday shows several months ago is misplaced and misguided. >> and joining me now from the white house is nbc news correspondent mike vicquera. the president did not say if he's nominating her for secretary of state. what's the end game here? we know the investigation is ongoing bah what do the senators want specifically at this point from susan rice? >> reporter: well, you know, it's hard to tell what the president's intentions are with regard to any perspective nomination to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. we haven't heard from him on since the spirited, forceful defense. the come after me defense of susan rice
caskill is returning to washington after winning beati todd akin so-called mccaskill on the road to victory. >> they all said, it's over. it's done. it's too red. it's just too there is no waybi that ccaski. well, you know what happened? you proved them wrong.n new ham election of two female representatives go delegation o women. bring in congresswoman dianeasa. let's look at the gender gap. president obama had a 11-point edge of women making up for the 7%s election we saw some polls that indicated or at least claimed the gender gap was closing and narrowing. that proved not to be the case. ere. >> i never believedhat the gender gap was cn of america, tk that they should be able to be equal in this society, get equal health care that they need, that they should be get birth control, they should be able to go to planned parenthood for the well woman visits and get pay equity in this country. it doesn't seem very radical to women. my daughters are 18 and 22. they found it unbelievable that we were debating about these thin iand so, i wasn't surprise all to see that 11-point gender gap and t
attack in benghazi. joining me now from washington is nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. as i mentioned, this meeting with senator lieberman set to start between 2:00 and 2:15. he gave an interview on the 25th of november to cnn, and at that time senator lieberman referred to rice as having a distinguished career up until now. he says, i don't know how i feel about exactly what was said on television that sunday morning. he too in that interview has similar questions that we saw from other three senators. >> reporter: he's the chairman of the senate homeland security committee, so he has particular standing in this because he has from the beginning called for greater investigation about what went on in benghazi. his committee reached out to susan rice and the administration in the early weeks to get to the bottom of this apparent sort of misdirection, whether it was intentional or not is the political fight. they now acknowledge that there wasn't a spontaneous demonstration, and these senators who are critics want to know why was that the public talking point whe
with danny vargas and the washington post's ann kornbluth. the man everyone talks about when you refer to polls, nate silver of the new york fimz 538 blog. he predicts president obama has a 91% chance of winning re-election. the president will win 313 electoral college votes, governor romney will win 225. >> it's not a coin toss at that point. it's close, but you'd have to have a case where the polls are off across the board. it could happen, but if anything, the race has broken toward president obama a bit in the last 48 hours. >> that, by the way, was nate on last night on colbert. here's something funny making the rounds. lo look at this on social media. it reads keep calm and trust nate silver. join the election day conversation on twitter. you can find us at @tamron hall or at @newsnation. we'll have more on "news nation" live from the beautiful democracy plaza. i like that picture. no, no, no, stop! humans -- one day, we're coming up with the theory of relativity, the next... stop, stop, stop! my car! not so much. but that's okay. you're covered with great ideas like optional bet
would be most likely to blame washington and president obama. they're most likely to vote democratic. people who do not have jobs who are struggling and not earning sufficient income seem much more likely to gravitate toward a party with a safety net. people who have jobs and are doing well are more likely to be skeptical of government activity. >> thank you very much. it's the final 100 hours of the campaign. right now president obama and governor romney are both in ohio about to hold campaign events. up next we check in with the political panel. their thoughts on what we see playing you out. running into controversy, new york's decision to move ahead with this week's marathon has sparked a lot of backlash. >> the city of new york is talking about getting water out of the battery tunnel and prepares for a marathon. we're pulling bodies out of the water. >> we feel so strongly that this is the right thing to do for the city of new york, and that this can only be and must only be the starting place of our support. >> so what does your gut tell you? do you support the decision that the
is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisconsin. >> you do want to be able to trust your president. you want to know -- you want to know that -- that your president means what he says and says what he means. after four years of president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. i have a clear and unequivocal message, and that is america is about to come roaring back. [ cheering ] >> joining me now, "washington post" columnist and msnbc analyst eugene robinson, marc caputo and mark murray. thank you so much, gentlemen, for joining. i got to bring eugene in
washington post," quote, it's the way of politics that you're going to have some good years and you're going to have some bad years. joins us now is nia hernson and b.e.t. host keith boykin. karl rove ushgs going to win some and lose some, you have good years and bad years. is he trying to minimize the sting? >> this was a stunningly bad year. they lost the presidency and lost seats the in the senate and they loth in the house. more people voted for democratic candidates in the house than for republican candidates. the idea that this is not a sign of against their mandate makes no sense. they've got to compromise. they can't just continue doing the same thing if they want to be competitive in the future. >> what's so interesting, lindsey graham was on, and he was talking about immigration. i got to play his comment, and i want your thoughts on the other side of it. let's play it, please. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't reload the gun. i intend not to reload this gun whether it comes to hispanic. i intend to tear down this wall and pass an immigration reform bill t
, whose effective tax rate as warren buffett reminds us is quite low. second of all, i think washington and the beltway is way out of touch with the american people on this issue. thomas, every single poll that i have seen says that we should ask the wealthy to start paying their fair share. one out of four major corporations pay zero in taxes. we're losing $100 billion every year because the wealthy and large corporations stash their money in the cayman islands. do you think we should go after ordinary people who are hurting in the recession or ask the wealthiest people and around large corporations to pay their fair share? the american people have been clear about this. this election told us something about this. >> senator, you say in your op-ed piece that congress must address the deficit situation and the fiscal cliff in a way that is fair. what proposal do you have moving forward knowing the way that the hill works right now? what do you think could work best to do something with that front? >> well, you see when you say knowing the way the hill works, what you're really saying kn
may not be such a dirty word in washington. rand paul says he's ready to work with democrats on immigration reform. and a big concession when it comes to taxes. kent conrad says democrats are throwing around mitt romney's idea to raise taxes on the rich by capping deductions. the chairman of the house republican conference says the willingness to all of a sudden work together boils down to timing. according to congressman deb hesterly, compromise works best after an election. ladies, thank you for joining me. you heard the comment there that bipartisanship works best after elections. i don't know if that's full proof because you have paul ryan saying that the american people voted for a divided government. seeing power in the house and a democrat in the white house. >> we have to make this work now and a few years ago, you would have heard them saying, no, we can't compromise. we're going to have to stick to our guns. i think this was a real shellacking for the republicans. now you're hearing all of 2016 people walking it back. all of the tea party types saying not all of the
in washington to be thinking every single day, how can i make things a little better for them? which isn't to say that everything we do is going to be perfect or that there aren't just going to be some big, tough challenges that we have to grapple with. but i do know that the federal government can see a difference. we are seeinging it right now on the jersey coast and in new york. people are still going through a really tough time. the response hasn't been perfect but it's been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it. and that's a pretty good metaphor for how i want the federal government to operate generally and i'll do everything i can to make sure it does. christie parson. hey. >> thank you, mr. president. and congratulations by the way. >> thanks. christie was there in -- when i was running for state senate. >> that's right, i was. >> christie and i go back a ways. >> never seen you lose. i wasn't there that one time. >> there you go. >> one quick follow-up and then i want to ask you about iran. i just want to make sure i understo
. >> that's interesting. i want to read something from "the washington post," michael. it says if some or all of these top national security figures ask/or they are deputies were vofld it's not accurate to say they acted alone but never believable on something this significant the white house would not have been in the center of the action. i guess what's amazing to me in so many respects, all the speculation from senator rogers having to be corrected by feinstein. if there's a viable and credible hearing going on, we understand lawmakers love to talk and many love to get in front of the camera. the reality is so much speculation in an almost incendiary form that is stunning in some ways, michael. >> you saw elected officials and hold press briefings. i say why did they close the door? now we have to pick and choose who we believe in terms of those who come out and confront the media. so that's not a healthy process. why not open the door and let everybody take a look at what's going on? one other quick observation. it seems to me that ambassador rice was parroting the intelligence bri
'll go off this cliff. you're looking at them pulling back everyday americans for folks in washington who can't get a compromise even when exit polling show the majority are in favor firefighter those making over than $250,000. >> well i'm not going for a bad deal and i'm sure there are quite a few of us. social security did not cut a penney of the debt or deficit. we don't need to cut it which is what a lot of the is executives want. you know, medicare has problems. we should deal with those. we should start negotiating drug price. that save 25s billion a year. they don't want to go there. the pharmaceutical doesn't want to go there. there are places to save money and make it whole but they're not the cause of the debt and debt we're dealing with. extraordinarily low taxes. for ten, 12 years we've been cutting taxes to create jobs. my question is where are the jobs. hay didn't come from the tax cuts. >> let me read something. this is part of the article that quoted your comments that says perhaps it's better to go over the cliff. it says with bad taste of budgets lingering in their mouth
in washington. they'll always have a seat at the table. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business, and i do. >> the president back on the campaign trail for the first time since saturday, hitting three states today. this morning it was wisconsin. right now he's en route to nevada. and later this evening, it is on to colorado. in what advisers call a slightly altered but affirmative stump speech, the president has promised to lay out his case of who he's fighting for and why. >> retraining at the age of 55 for a career in biotechnology. she needs a champion. >> and these are live pictures now from where governor romney is on the ground in virginia, in the southern part of the state. it is the governor's second event, by the way, of the day there. earlier today in central virginia, the governor resumed his message that he is the change candidate. this election, something he started before the storm. >> if the president were to be re-elected, you're going to see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, if any
that base is going to drive their representatives, want republicans in washington, in congress to put up just a big a front of opposition to him as they did in the first term, if not bigger. >> interesting, michael. i appreciate your article. it was great having you on. people should check it out and see what the freak-out could possibly look like. thank you. great pleasure to have you on. so for our "news nation" gut check today, we want to know what your gut is telling bu the results of tomorrow's election. what do you feel? you heard michael tamaski give insight from his perspective on what's a freak-out moment. politico says for democrats they would be leaderless if the president did not win. go to facebook.com/newsnation and post your comment we're going read them and reveal them on air tomorrow. that does it for "news nation" live from democracy plaza. tomorrow we have special orange can diana da yet, ann kornblut and steve days as well as steve boykin. a big, diverse line-up for you.

rendell, also msnbc political analyst, "the washington post" nia henderson, raul reyes and nbc deputy political director mark murray, who just obtained a copy of the rnc presentation of why they lost. i won't reveal what says. i'll let mark do that. in the meantime, governor rendell, let me start off with you. you have a statement from mitt romney's team and it says governor romney was simply elaborating on what david axelrod had said about the obama campaign's effort to target key demographics, most specifically women. it's interesting because they note most specifically women, when i know you recall ann romney getting on stage saying, we love women! that was the attempt by her and her husband to bring women voters into the fold because of some of the issues so glaring regarding the republican party. >> sure. in the last closing commercial was that woman jogging pushing the baby stroller. look, they don't get it. the romney campaign didn't get it. the governor, as much as i add hire him for what he's done in public life, he showed his true color in the 47% speech, and he showed them
